Headquartered out of Irvine, California, Next Level is a fledging custom auto shop with plans of trading in modified, high-performance trucks, built to suit both hardcore off-roading and daily driving. And after months of preparation, Next Level has finally revealed its debut offering with its Jeep Gladiator 6×6.
The 6×6 sees the already off-road-capable Gladiator’s 5’ bed extended to 8’, and its standard wheels and suspension setup have been jettisoned in favor of 20” wheels shod in 37” all-terrain tires, a robust pass-through center axle, and FOX suspension. Next Level’s Gladiator also sports auto-retracting side steps and optional steel bumpers, auxiliary LED lighting, winches, and other off-road upgrades. Equipped with full time 4 wheel drive as well as on-demand 6 wheel drive, Next Level’s Gladiator 6×6 will be available with a trio of engine options consisting of a 2.0L inline-four, a 3.6L V6, and a 3.0L V6 Turbo Diesel — generating 270hp and 290ft-lbs, 285hp and 260ft-lbs, and 375hp and 470ft-lbs of torque, respectively. The interior’s also been gifted a central display with navigation, a backup camera, and connectivity to Bluetooth, Android Auto, and Apple CarPlay, plus hand-stitched Napa leather seats with five different styles of seats and a slew of leather and stitching color options. Starting from $132,000, the Next Level Jeep Gladiator 6×6 will be available directly through select authorized Jeep dealers.
